Every corner in Shanghai is full of artistic atmosphere in November.
ART021, the huge Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair is celebrating its 5th anniversary from November 8 to 12, 2017, showcasing a premier selection of modern art by 102 leading galleries from across the globe, taking place at the Shanghai Exhibition Center, supported by China National Arts Fund.
It offers a global platform for dealers, artists, collectors, sponsors, museums and non-profit organizations to share the exciting developments of contemporary art, fostering cross-cultural dialogue and stimulating creative thought.
ART021 is playing a leading role as a contemporary art fair in the Asian art market.
Prior to the fair, the organizers announced that they will open a brand new art fair in Beijing next year. From the first opening, they bring 29 to 54 and then to 104 galleries, the show gradually expanded to the North, which shows that the determination of positioning “small and fine” art fair has conquered the art market.
The compatibility of local art market in Shanghai is very large. There is not only a systematic collection of private art galleries, but also the mass spending power of mass arts, especially the degree of internationalization of art exhibitions is unmatchable by other cities.
With the growing consumer buying power and economy in China, people nowadays have higher demands in the quality of life, and eventually will accept works of art more easily.
Now it is the right time to invest in arts in China, especially Beijing and Shanghai. I am very excited to witness and take part in this era, participating in the art collecting!
